I'm trying to update my Counter-Strike: Global Offensive server and Steam is giving the error code 0x6 however this error does not seem to be documented anywhere.

[...]
Update state (0x3) reconfiguring, progress: 0.00 (0 / 0)
Update state (0x3) reconfiguring, progress: 0.00 (0 / 0)
Update state (0x3) reconfiguring, progress: 0.00 (0 / 0)
Update state (0x3) reconfiguring, progress: 0.00 (0 / 0)
Update state (0x3) reconfiguring, progress: 0.00 (0 / 0)
Update state (0x3) reconfiguring, progress: 0.00 (0 / 0)
Error! App '740' state is 0x6 after update job.

How would I go about finding out what this error means and how to prevent it? My ulimit is 2048, I have 10GB storage available and everything seems completely fine, networking and everything however SteamCMD just wont update CS:GO.

I believe this is what I had problems with as well. To update your server you need to use the force_install_dir command, because otherwise it won't know where to update something installed with the id 740.

I.E: force_install_dir ./CSGO/

(the /CSGO/ is the one where your srcds_run, srcds_linux and so on are located. (not in the /csgo/ where the actual game-files are)

From memory, error 0x6 means that something in the local SteamCMD file depots is corrupt.

On Linux, you can remove the ~/Steam directory to (usually) fix it. I'm not sure where this is located on Windows.

  • er... Remove the /Steam directory and then run steamcmd again. No idea how I missed that last year.

I had the same issue.

My solution was disabling my Steam cache and double checking my network connection to steam (dns, firewall, etc).

Redownload steamcmd and use the following command:

./steamcmd.sh +login anonymous +force_install_dir /$your_serverfiles +app_update 740 validate
